Springfield Showcase: Announcement

Hello Tappers,
I would like to quickly apologize for the brief absence from the blog – been away this summer a few times and have really procrastinated writing BUT have loads of really cool ideas so keep your eyes peeled. Anyways …

TSTO is a one of a kind apps where I feel design is 100% user friendly and it truly lets you go free with your creative ideas. The reason I’m not a fan of other “city building” games like the Family Guy game (which has other major flaws in my opinion!), Sims CityBuilder and other building apps is because of the lack of freedom they give you with the design. They give you loads of decoration and buildings and the only “freedom” is where you place them. So yes, you can create some nice looking areas but with TSTO you can use hedges to create mountains, fences to create custom walls, bushes to spell words and there is SO much space for the player to take the decorations that they’ve been given and turn it into some bigger and impressive.

That’s why I wanted to create a space for players to humbly show-off areas of their towns which they are proud of. If you are a TSTO neighbor of mine then you know that my town is an absolute mess that I’ve barely worked on so seeing loads of creations will hopefully inspire me to stop procrastinating and JUST DO IT! So how does this “Showcase” work?…

Simpsons Analyzer talks The Simpsons and it’s “decline”

Hiya Everybody!… The other week I read an article about a man who had watched every Simpsons episode and mapped out his ratings onto a graph along with some labels to explain. Sol Harris, the man behind the study, watched every episode, gave it a rating out of 10,  worked out the rating average for each season and plotted this on a graph …

I was fascinated by this study so asked Sol, via Twitter, if I could send him questions and he happily agreed. Reading his answers definitely made me think about my opinion on the Simpsons, which I may do a post about, so here are the questions and answers …

TSTO – Some “Singing” Speculation

If you came here to listen to me sing this entire post from the title then get ready to be disappointed 😂

We are mid summer and last day of this Pride Day mini-event so that can only mean one thing … EA give us a two month break to let us enjoy our personal holidays? HAHAHAHAHA …

No. EA have definitely gotten into this routine of update after update and if I’m being honest … I like it. Just as long as they don’t “run out of ideas” because they’re going at an unsustainable rate. So with something lurking around the deep dark corners of the EA servers and from the clues that they’ve given, I’m getting very excited! 😊

Some enjoy some speculation and ideas of what’s to come in the next Tapped Out update …

What I Learned from … Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone

Philosphers Book

Whether you call it Philosophers Stone or Scorers Stone – Harry Potter and the [preferred adjective] stone is a beautiful book – in my opinion – that brilliantly sets up an amazing series that has definatly changed the lifes of many children and adults globally. I was definitely one of them. I vividly remember the day that my mum had finished the series and told me I had to start reading them. So I took the first book on our annual Hunstanton trip and could not put it down. I remember going through the series so quickly and crying near the end because I knew there wouldn’t be more to read.

Since Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone was published on the 26th June 1997, it is the 20th anniversary of it’s release! And to mark this milestone I thought I’d break down what the first book in this series taught me as I grew up. I hope you enjoy …

This post does contain SPOILERS of the first book but if you haven’t gotten to the reveal of the first book then where have you been the last 20 years? 😀

Chris Ledesma talks Simpsons popularity and 30 year milestone!

Hello guys and welcome to a post I announce with such excitement. Remember when I got to send question to THE Harry Shearer? It was such an honour and when I decided to randomly ask if I could send questions to THE Chris Ledesma, I never thought he would actually say yes. Chris has edited and work with the music for the show for EVERY episode of the Simpsons. Just let that sink in!

Chris has a really good blog which he links throughout his answers and I’ve defintaly enjoyed reading about his journey through the blog. The day came when I read his post about the recent 30 year milestone and randomly had a thought to ask him if I can ask him questions. I didn’t ask think he would say yes and actually send me his responses.

I hope you enjoy his responses …


Clarification: My questions are in bold whist his answers are in plain text
